911 5 Years Later

On September 11, 2001, the World's only Superpower, the United States of America was attacked by terrorists and the World Trade Center fell, causing thousands of deaths and a call for revenge against the terrorists.

5 years on, we are getting mixed results and feelings about this "War on Terrorism".

From World support for the invasion of Afghanistan to wipe out the Taleban, to today where the U.S struggle with Iraq, Iran and North Korea. It seems like "peace" is now further from the World than ever.

Various Problems that US is facing now:
1. Afghanistan becoming poppy state
2. Iraq is not terror free yet
3. Iran now unwilling to stop nuclearisation
4. N.Korea wants nukes for "detterence" from "imperial" US
5. Israel's shaky peace
6. Taiwan: To "help" or not?
7. Deficit $$$
8. Reduced support from citizens and foreign Governments

No doubt the war was started with good intentions, but now, it seems like a mess. Lets hope these gets solved soon, or more blood will be shed.
